Flu - And just like that, you’ve got an unwanted guest in your body. No worries, your body can totally handle it.
Maybe your wife’s poked an accusing finger at your boep and teased you that the extra padding is grounds for divorce, or you may have been asked, “Does my butt look big in this…?” Either way and contrary to popular belief, your body is a lean, mean, virus-fighting machine.
If you didn’t know, here’s the good news. You can’t get exactly the same kind of ‘flu ever again, because your body would have developed antibodies to fight the invaders. But, just as clever as your body is in fighting these viruses, they don’t miss an opportunity to mutate, so as to subtly change their biology.
